Shouldn't we say that the name token in G/S/C is only 10 characters long, so they couldn't fit an o between the t and r? Hangfromthefloor 10:19, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

That is an interesting piece of trivia. In fact, it's the same reason it's Victreebel with only one L. Put it in the trivia section. Tom Temprotran 11:10, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

This guy's Generation III backsprite is the reason I never evolved my Colosseum Croconaw. Gligar 20:01, 20 September 2008 (UTC)


Shouldn't Aqua Tail in the move tutor section be in bold letters since the move receives STAB --COLOMBIApsi 04:10, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Obviously. TTEchidna 04:13, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Skin Color

Shouldn't we say the skin color in G/S/C was because of poor color capabilities? Because the artwork from Gold and Silver clearly shows it to have blue skin, but the sprite from the same games clearly shows that it has green skin. I know Sneasel was affected by the same color error. Also, just as a little extra thing, who agrees with me that Feraligatr looks SO much cooler with green skin than blue?

I totally agree with you! plus the shiny sprite back then looks A LOT like Godzila.

Where did it say that Feraligatr was cold-blooded?

I am confused as to the veracity of this statement. I do not know which source this statement is from. Steph 00:55, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


The trivia section says that Feraligatr is the only Pokemon to have more than five syllables in its name. What about Electivire? Does he not have 5 syllables? - unsigned comment from Invisibool (talkcontribs)

E-Lec-Ti-Vire. Four. In English words, an e on the end is almost always silent. That's also the way it is pronounced in the anime. Werdnae (talk) 18:14, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
It actually is an interesting question—when pronouncing it, it comes out as E-Lec-Ti-Vye-Ur. How is this sort of syllabic split handled normally? --AndyPKMN 21:02, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
When does it come out with that pronounciation? An e at the end of a word is often silent in English, and the anime pronounces it with four syllables. Note that when it is a silent e the Vire (like wire) is considered a single syllable, not two. Werdnae (talk) 05:47, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
That's weird. When I try to pronounce wire it also comes out as two syllables (Wye-Ur). Consider that it rhymes with briar/brier (Brye-Ur). --AndyPKMN 10:58, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
It's because of the semi-silent nature of the e. It modifies the pronounciation of the r, but it isn't a separate syllable because it isn't pronounced itself. A syllable needs at least one pronounced vowel. If it were two syllables it would be wye-rey. The English language can be very odd at times. Werdnae (talk) 20:29, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
